Plot Summary: Jonny, a wild and impulsive teenage girl living precariously in a town where young women continue to go missing, and the power she's forced to unlock to survive.

Poster - Title Card rating: notes: A feminist movie that doesn't always hit its marks, but it is never NOT compelling. Dream-like visuals and vibes to spare, it's almost Lynchian; and the cast understands the assignment, as well. The ending is a little rushed and didn't quite land for me, but I'd still watch this again.

2.5 our of 4 stars -

"Perpetrator" is about many issues girls and women face, from the fear of losing one's identity to the obsession of looking young and how that affects the next generation. It's about coming into your power and using it to help others. And it's about not accepting girls and women as victims and fighting against sexism in all its nefarious forms. It's not always clear what the movie is trying to say, but even its misfires are more interesting than most because of what Reeder and her stars bring to their characters.
